Funeral Poem to Remember Deceased
By Dave Pipitone
How can an inspiring funeral poem help bring peace of
mind and heart after a sudden death or loss of a loved
one? Many people are very concerned with the fate and
destiny of the deceased loved one. Often, fears arise
about what happens after death and what may happen to
our loved one. Is she safe? Is he happy? Will we ever
meet or see or be with each other again?
Christians believe in eternal life with God. That belief
is based upon an earthly life united with Jesus Christ
which does not end when the body dies. The resurrection
of Jesus from the dead destroyed death and opened the
door to heaven for His followers. Even though a physical
body dies, those who believe in Jesus have a strong
conviction of hope that God will bring a dead person
into a new existence of love and peace. Using a funeral
poem to recall that a person is at home with God brings
comfort when a loved one dies.
Funeral services offer a family and friends the chance
to gather together in mutual support after the death of
a loved one. Often, in the funeral parlor of a funeral
home, the remains of a physical body of a loved one is
present. Many families choose to use a casket to carry
the body of their deceased loved one. Others choose a

of the ashes, or placement in a mausoleum which honors
the physical body and respects that one day it will be
made new. Depending on the condition of the departed
body, face-to-face mourning during a visitation is a
Memorial poems written by friends or families can help
work through the grieving process. Funeral homes and
churches may have stock poems that you can use to
remember a deceased loved one. Religious good stores and
websites offer comforting funeral memorial poems about
life and death, and life after death. A family funeral
can distribute and use these cards as part of the
funeral service, as a reminder of the deceased loved
one, or a small remembrance area at home.
Making funeral arrangements is often a difficult task.
You are missing the presence of a loved one and the
shock, grief and loss can be overwhelming. There are
many decisions to make at the time of the funeral,
including the religious services, the burial, the wake,
contacting family and friends, writing and publishing an
obituary, and many other details.
Long after the funeral flowers have faded and the
services are over, the grieving process will continue.
It is during those times that the help of community
through a support group, church, friends and neighbors
will be important. Family and friends can make a big
difference sharing stories of a departed loved one's
life. Tell different episodes that were funny, touching
moments and special times when you felt very close and
connected. Keeping a treasury of inspirational memorial
poems is soothing.
Death does not end the connection with deceased loved
ones; it merely changes how you connect through love,
faith and hope. An inspirational funeral poem can help
ease the pain of loss and eventually bring joy by
remembering there is a connection with your deceased
